I lost my battle to get prusa mk3 it's all built and after some struggles its happily printing at the moment that may not last 😞 still it's all practise i have successfully printed a 3dladlab q trainer including wheels and tyres . Flex pl a is a whole different ball game it bends going into the extruder but you can get a little mix from thingiverse now it seems happy

Got side tracked with other stuff like 3d printed plane 3d printed etc, along the way I found and bought a humongous plan on six sheets of five i can't remember it's 103 inch span it may be just a bit to much to manage but it's on hold till the Fury is started and finished

Well that served me right upgrades firmware to Marlin for better safety features plus auto bed levelling and printing grinds to a halt all part of the experience i suppose we'll at least you get more confident with the machine ,one problem filament extending above extruder heater because a little loose that has caused blogs also known as snot (lovely) so faked up heater and nozzle it's easier to replace than clean ,overheating of the extruder can cause the ptfe inner to stretch which causes uneven printing also extruder motor drive cog making poor contact with filament causes poor and erratic layer bonding a noticeable tick tick is a symptom . Bed levelling has become quite easy and is worth practise recommended gap is .2mm supposedly a sheet of a4 worth checking because paper is often .1mm so fold in half . Currently I,m trying to talk myself out of getting a prusa I3 . How are you getting on BEB

I don't think there is anything else left for you to do unless of course it is some kind of cockpit details, But roundels bits of styrene, paper, small thin sheets of wood I don't know just looks like all the components needed to make one

Well there is something strange and unreal about creating a plane when your not even near it . Sitting in the lounge with the printing printing bits in the hanger all hands free. It took a steep learning curve to get to that and still plenty to learn

As has been said do not use water to thin acrylic paint use tamiya thinners or use bespoke paints for the airbrush nozzle. if you want to spray the likes of Valspar use an airless spraygun (about £30 ) it has a bigger nozzle and can cope with undiluted Valspar paint
